Bethany Silverton loves Sweetwater, Mont. It's everything stuffy Philadelphia is not. She invites Hawk Chandler, part owner of Circle Blue Ranch, to the church where her father preaches. Vince Richards owns the Bar V Ranch and has been trying to buy Hawk's land for the water he so badly needs. Vince has high hopes of being the next governor and thinks Bethany would be the perfect wife for him. He will stop at nothing to reach his goals -- including framing someone for murder. Bethany must make a life-changing decision to save the man she truly wants to be with. (Zondervan, Jul., 304 pp., $12.99)
